The City of Alexandria is seeking volunteers to participate in the Alice Ferguson Foundation’s 21st Annual Potomac River Watershed Cleanup (PRWC), and join others across the region in cleaning up local streams and the Potomac River on Saturday, April 4, from 9 a.m. to noon. In case of heavy rain that day, the event will be held on Saturday, April 11, from 9 a.m. to noon.
The City is hosting a cleanup site at Four Mile Run Park at the end of Commonwealth Avenue. For directions, more information, and a complete list of PRWC sites in Alexandria, please visit: http://www.fergusonfoundation.org/trash_initiative/rc_sitesalexandriava.html The PRWC is the largest cleanup in the watershed. Last year, 12,078 dedicated volunteers removed more than 285 tons of trash from regional streams. Volunteers should wear shoes and clothes that they do not mind getting dirty; trash bags and gloves will be provided.
To volunteer, please contact Jesse Maines at 703.519.3400, ext. 166. Volunteers are also needed for additional sites throughout the region. For a complete list of PRWC sites, visit www.PotomacCleanup.org or call 301.292.5665.
